On My Way to New England

Have you seen Wes Anderson’s latest movie “Moonrise Kingdom“?

I did yesterday and it marked the moment when I finally arrived here in the US, both in body and mind.

The story is set in in the 1960s somewhere in  New England where I’ll be traveling this week. The extraordinary cast includes Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and many super talented kids. The music is great and Anderson’s love for detail makes me want to see it again soon.

I loved it!

    I am so impatient to watch this movie! It was showing in my flight back from France last week but I decided to wait for a chance to watch it at home on a big screen. I watched a couple of light movies and also Barbara. I wish I had saved Barbara for a larger screen too. It’s an amazing movie.

  2. I always fall asleep during movies so my husband and I stopped going to theaters. I would like to see this movie, though. My sister saw it twice and raved about it.

    My friends and I loved this too! I was hoping, like many, to find the books Suzy was reading, but found they were invented just for this movie. Wes Anderson wrote little bits of imaginary books, then got a different artist to do covers for each one. Cool idea! Anyway, he also made animated shorts of all those passages. You can find them all collected in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jNc7HuatHQ&feature=relmfu

    So glad he did it!

    Let us know when you find more movies like these – they’re wonderful!
